We had a fantastic time in Queenstown which was enhanced by our stay at the Pounamu apartments. We had a one bedroom self contained apartment with a wonderful balcony view over Lake Wakatipu and beyond to the ever changing moods of the hills. The staff at Pounamu were friendly and helpful and I would recommend a stay for those who... More

This motel offers stylish, modern facilities within walking distance of the town and at very reasonable prices. It's clean and comfortable, has a little kitchen area, and I especially appreciated the laundry facilities. Would definitely stay again!

We had a great stay at Pounamu in Queenstown. Amazing view of lake Wakitipu and the Remarkables. A short walk into town, downhill to go but a bit uphill to get back. We did have a car but only used it to go into town when it was raining and if we were getting lots of shopping. The apartment had... More

Great place to stay with fabulous views across the lake. You do need a car but bus service at the gate. Apartments very clean,spacious with plenty of heating & the staff were all very courteous & helpful. We look forward to staying there again.

We came to Queenstown for our honeymoon and stayed at the Pounamu Apartments. Leo and Prisilla were wonderful! They assisted us with everything from dinner recommendations to setting up day adventures. They were so kind and helpful throughout our whole stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Will definitely come back and stay at the Pounamu Apartments!

We stayed here recently on our trip to the South Island. We used Queenstown as a base for our activities and stayed here for a couple of nights. The apt is conveniently located, very clean and modern. We really enjoyed our stay here. The wifi is free too. We took a trip to Milford Sound and they let us leave... More

Waking up each morning in bed to view the lake and mountains said I am on holidays. Beautiful, peaceful lake with a golf club, across the lake, appearing as if on an island with a mountain back drop.There was nothing that had not been thought of. Comfortable fluffy bed. Gas heater that heated the room quickly. No noise from the... More

These apartments are excellent with lovely views. The service too was great. Two points to consider: 1 They are close to the road so looking out over the road to the lake can be noisy with doors / windows open. They are double glazed so it is reasonably quiet with doors & windows closed. 2 The ground floor apartments don't... More

These are great apartments - exceeded our expectations by a long way. If you stay there - look out for the lakeside route into town, it's stunningly beautiful. The view from our apartment was stunning.
